Dermatologist 's  Response
Hi, your problem may be a seborrheic dermatitis which may involve scalp, eyebrows, nasal folds, moustache, beard, behind the ears, chest and back.
It is a chronic problem and requires regular use of an antifungal stay on lotion and an antidandruff shampoo.
Oral medication depends on the severity.
take care
